Porch Quote 

"When I read the book, it was basically an attack on the Bush administration."
--D.G. Martin, in an interview with the Charlotte Observer, about why David Potorti, author of September 11th Families For Peaceful Tomorrows: Turning our Grief Into Action for Peace, had been canceled as a guest on his program Bookwatch on UNC-TV. He said he and the producers thought they should avoid partisan books in an election. Earlier this year, when asked by the Independent why Potorti had been canceled, Martin said: "While I thought it was a great book and agreed with the politics of it, it was a little bit too much a book about a particular political movement and not so much about the 9-11 survivors."
